    1968 Arnold Palmer Match Used Putter with Palmer Letter of Provenance. Rare and desirable club was not only used by this legend of the links, but actually built by him as well. The history of the offering is addressed in the included "August 12, 2012" typed and signed letter to our consignor: "Dear Aaron: I can verify from the photos you sent that the putter pictured was one that I built myself. I don't recall the specifics of Charlie Knickerbocker, but I did win the Bob Hope Classic and the Kemper Open in 1968. That's about all I can tell you about that. Nonetheless, I hope that this information is helpful to you in creating your proposed fund-raising tournament to benefit the Betty Ford Center. Sincerely, Arnold Palmer." Our consignor notes that he received the club from a gentleman who had been given the club by Knickerbocker, who had received the club from Palmer personally. At that time Knickerbocker told the recipient that the club was used in two Palmer tournament victories, but this is impossible now to verify. The club measures thirty-four inches in length with a "Cougar" grip that shows clear use. Base of club head is engraved "MT-906." Fine, used condition. Letter of provenance from Arnold Palmer. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
